It's my garden and I'll whinge if I want to - to the tune of "it's my party and I'll cry if I want to"!

Choosing chillies

Obelix, check out T&M online,  I bought several packets of seeds from them this and last year, P&P cost £4.95 to Switzerland and you can pay with credit cards Visa etc. Received them only 4-5 days after ordering. They have a good choice of chillies.

I've just looked at the site Berghill mentioned and it seems quite interesting, but I'm having enough trouble keeping up with this one. I'll be spending the whole day on the computer keeping up with two and anyway, I've gotten used to you all and am sure if I have a problem I'll get sufficient answers on here.
